Here's a post from a person who singles out Nebraska as a tough place to be vegan.

Sarah Elizabeth Korus writes:

Yeah, try living in Nebraska while being vegetarian. It's difficult in the largest city in that state...not to mention the rural areas where I grew up. I couldn't imagine trying to be vegan in the Midwest, overall.
